“Guests on these incredible sailings will see and do more on these two- to four-week sailings than most people do in years of travel,” offered VP of US Brand Management, Joelle Davis. “The Scenic Eclipse is as luxurious as they come but what really puts it over the top of five stars are the efforts of the onboard Discovery team, who pass on their knowledge of and passion for these amazing places.”

 The 2019/2020 season introduces several new itineraries across Scenic’s fleet of innovative, luxury Discovery Yachts. New Arctic destinations join the Mediterranean, South American, and European itinerary line up, including the Russian and Canadian Arctic, and an expansion of its European Arctic itineraries, as well as new cruises along North America’s East Coast.
